Andrew Charles Forrest

The Quiet Man

The Quiet Man


He never wore the medals that they gave him for the war

I never asked him why or what they gave them to him for

He never seemed to want to think about it anymore

and now he's gone I have them and their ribbons here, all four

He'll never wear the medals that they gave him for the war

    Amazing tribute
    to your father....Mr. Forrest
    He sounds like a patriotic man that didn't seek recognition, he just served his country honorably๐Ÿ’–
    Thank you for sharing Sir,

  • Neville

    these too are very moving words Charles and it is not hard to see why you are so justifiably proud of your dear Dad ... Bless you friend and your Dads memory.... Neville

  • Suresh

    Medals were worthy of him
    As your words are worthy of him

    Hold on to those medals and memories
